Is Europe an undervalued prospect for long-term growth?



​Tim Stevenson and James Ross, Co-Managers on the Janus Henderson Horizon Pan European Equity Fund, reflect on the prospects for European equities in 2019, at a time of political uncertainty and slowing economic growth. Tim addresses his upcoming retirement, while James looks at the fund’s strategic positioning, in the search for high-quality/high-return businesses capable of generating higher returns in future.

Key takeaways:
  • Tim Stevenson’s upcoming retirement will leave the fund in the capable hands of current  Co-Manager James Ross, supported by Janus Henderson’s wider Pan-European Equities team
  • The fund has three categories for prospective holdings in the strategy: compounders, improvers and income blend
  • The limited scope for interest rate rises in Europe should be supportive for equities in the region, which look attractively priced on a relative basis

Specific risks

  • Shares can lose value rapidly, and typically involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. The value of your investment may fall as a result.
  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Fund.
  • If a Fund has a high exposure to a particular country or geographical region it carries a higher level of risk than a Fund which is more broadly diversified.
  • Changes in currency exchange rates may cause the value of your investment and any income from it to rise or fall.
  • If the Fund or a specific share class of the Fund seeks to reduce risks (such as exchange rate movements), the measures designed to do so may be ineffective, unavailable or detrimental.
  • Any security could become hard to value or to sell at a desired time and price, increasing the risk of investment losses.
